The CIA's Secret Bin Laden Training Facility In North Carolina

In No Easy Day, Navy Seal Mark Bissonnette's account of the raid that killed Osama bin Laden, Bissonnette mentions that Seal Team 6 trained on a replica compound at a secret site in North Carolina.
The website Cryptome has published  Maps images of Harvey Point Defense Testing in North Carolina, a CIA training facility, that show what appears to be a pretty accurate model of bin Laden's Abbottabad compound in Pakistan.
The construction of the model compound as of February 15, 2011
        Here is a Google Maps image of bin Laden's compound:

As the Atlantic Wire points out, the same Harvey Point coordinates in Google Earth show that the mock-Abbottabad compound was destroyed as of January 30, 2012—just like bin Laden's actual compound.
